    Yeah, Liberals are all rich. Like these "f'n wage-scrubs" that work at Whole Foods. I bet some of them even get paid minimum wage. It's Marxism I tell ya!

    You didn't catch me saying all liberals are rich - those are your words. But the ones who are rich are often the snotty ones like Bloomburg or any number of Hollywood types who can't wait to look down on the masses and put them in their place.

    And you didn't catch me saying the workers at Whole Foods are "f'n wage scrubs" - those are your words. I honor all work but I expect people to honor their work commitment, that being to work the hours they agreed to when hired, the hours assigned, and for the wages they agreed to when hired or any such additional monies they have been granted through hard work or promotion.

    Entitlement is not big in my vocabulary, whether it's rich entitlement or poor entitlement. You get what you deserve and you deserve what you get unless you're willing to improve yourself and your value to someone who wants to buy your services.

    I don't believe this store or Whole Foods in general is unionized, so if you promote their right to strike do you also promote the right of Whole Foods or this store in particular to fire them en masse if they don't show up to work at their assigned time?

    Which is a sentiment I have often expressed about right libertarians who bitch, complain, moan, carp and whine about not having any damn social contract and how they never voted for the laws they are suppose to obey like everybody else. Yes indeed SMTA - exercise your ultimate choice and vote with your feet. And apply that advice across the board.

    Why don't we have everything open and function like a regular day if people are willing to give up their values for profits?

    Who is giving up values for profit? If the consumer did not want to go to a store on a Thanksgiving they wouldn't. If enough people did not shop on the holiday, the store would not be open.

    It is also interesting raising the "value" stance. Some think its manditory or ok for police/fire/medical to work on a holiday. Yet, it is sinister for a retail or food store to be open.

    Don't wanna work holidays? Don't work retail or service.

    F'n wage-scrubs.
    I say enough is enough! Let people go home to enjoy their Thanksgiving dinners with family and or friends like everyone else and not stay open late. That is greedy to me.

    If Whole Foods feels that is in their best economic interests, they can do so. What, I thought you believed in freedom.

    Fortunately, Whole Foods isn't going to do that because they have more business sense than you do.
